How To Bet On Steelers Bills – Bills Start to Show Promise at Home

Pittsburgh Steelers @ Buffalo Bills – Saturday August 25, 2012 7:00PM EST

The Buffalo Bills are well aware that the team needs to start showing some promise leading into the regular season or the hundreds of millions of dollars spent in the off-season will seem like colossal waste. NFL betting experts were not ready to hand the Bills a playoff spot after some summer moves brought the team defensive stars Mario Williams and Mark Anderson along with cornerback draft pick Stephon Gilmore, but the expectations certainly were raised. The problem in Buffalo has been the offense. Fans will point to the game immediately after quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick signed his six-year, $60 million contract as the day the offense went downhill, and it has never recovered.

The betting sites are getting mixed signals about the Pittsburgh Steelers in preseason. In week one, Pittsburgh looked listless and not really interested in playing. In week two, the Steelers got into a shootout with the new Indianapolis Colts and won. The Pittsburgh offense looks like it is a little out of sync and the defense does not have the teeth it used to have. The Steelers are going through a lot of changes right now, and this is the week where the team starts to nail down some key positions and get ready for the season.

Why the Bills Will Win

The Bills got blown out in week two in Minnesota, but it was not the first-team offense or defense that got embarrassed. When the Bills' first-teamers were in the game, the team looked sharp. There are still mistakes being made, but the offense looked in sync and the defense looked hungry. Once the starters came out of the game, the Vikings took over. Those are the kinds of things that make coaches worry about the depth on the team. But this game should be played by the first-string for the first half and more. That means we will really see how far this offense has come.

Why the Steelers Will Win

Without its two starting running backs and without wide receiver Mike Wallace, the Pittsburgh offense seems lost. The sportsbook experts are used to seeing quarterback Ben Roethlisberger running for his life because that is often the position Big Ben puts himself in. But Roethlisberger has nowhere to throw the ball, and that is a problem. The defense is filling in for the injured James Harrison and doing very well. This Pittsburgh defense could score enough points to win this game on its own.

The Bottom Line

The Steelers have been handed a few challenges it has to deal with before the season starts, and that will slow the progress of the team's development. The offense needs Mike Wallace and the defense needs James Harrison. Without those two players, this team is just not the same.

Pick: Buffalo Bills
